Run for the Coast

On October 21st I began an adventure.  In conjunction with the Tuna Run 200, I ran 200 miles non-stop from Raleigh to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.  It was an amazing experience, full of incredible highs and challenging lows, taking me 64 hours, 50 minutes and 39 seconds.  You can read the details of my run here. 

Why would I do such a thing, you ask?  Great question.  I’m did it to raise money for and awareness of Healing Transitions, which is a non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to offer innovative, peer-based, recovery-oriented services to homeless and underserved men and women with alcoholism and other drug addictions. The program is specifically designed to rekindle a person’s hope, desire, and ability to live a meaningful and productive life. You can learn more about their services by clicking the link here.

As the proud husband of a recovering alcoholic, I have seen first-hand the devastating effects of alcohol and drug dependency.  Organizations like Healing Transitions provide a much needed path to sobriety, recovery, and a new life.  You can read about my family’s struggle to deal with addiction on my wife’s blog about her recovery: MYACTIVERECOVERY.BLOGSPOT.COM 

It’s not too late to help.  Please consider making a donation to help support me. All of the donations raised will be sent directly to Healing Transitions.  If you decide to donate something, you are in luck – Healing Transitions is a non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductable.
